Based on your system try a nice power cord upgrade on that fine SVS subwoofer. It won't be a subtle improvement, more like a shotgun blast of POWER Here is a link to get you started but just google Power Cord shootout or Power cord review for tons more: http://www.head-fi.org/t/219202/its-...cords-reviewed
SUBWOOFERS! Now I gotta say I wasn't expecting that reply. Power cord? Really? So the fine folks at SVS have included a suboptimal power cord? I have many questions now.

Re: High End Audio Cables...

When I got my new sub it just wouldn't perform like I thought so I put this high-end power cord on it and this thing really came to life!

But of course when I went to attach this fine power cord I noticed I hadn't even attached the one that came with it... oops. Go ahead; ask me how much I paid for it...

Do you have any reviewers that you like? There are a LOT of guys that write reviews and see if you can find one that you like that has also reviewed power cords.
Then try auditioning a few and compare. Please post whatever you try so we can all benefit.
As for the fine folks at SVS they don't manufacture power cables so why beat them up about it?
Try their interconnect and post if you prefer:

Here is post from a guy using SVS and upgraded to a better power cord:

You already know what I am going to say next, TRY IT and then post an opinion. Your ears will answer the rest of your questions.

The thread is for discussion of audio cables...not power cables, please get back on track.
